SKU: CHILACSHZ22
Sourced from several vineyards from 3x sub regions of McLaren Vale (Seaview, Blewitt Springs and Clarendon), resulting in complexity in blending. Each parcel was harvested and fermented separately. Crushed and fermented on skins for 7-10 days, with some parcels containing some whole bunches. Once fermented to dryness, fruit was pressed off skins and transferred to a combination of new, 2nd and 3rd use French oak barrels. We want to see the perfume, the vibrancy and the bright fruit characters come to the fore. A milder vintage produces smaller than average crops. A long and dry ripening season prevailed producing wines with excellent varietal character that are well balanced.

”A sumptuous offering, the immensely complex bouquet shows dark fruit richness, vanillin oak, cake spice and dark chocolate aromas, followed by a powerfully concentrated palate that's both substantial and harmonious. Wonderfully composed and proportioned with a sustained, seamless finish.”
